John Henry and Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool FC just over a year ago, and their effect on the historic club is obvious.
With the purchases of Luis Suarez, Andy Carroll, Stewart Downing, Charlie Adam and more, and the second coming of club legend Kenny Dalglish at the helm, Liverpool plays with more flair and is not nearly as destitute as it has been in recent years.
But the Reds aren't on par with Manchester United and Chelsea yet either, and Saturday's draw with newly promoted Norwich City at Anfield proved that once again.
Liverpool spurned numerous chances in the first half but took the lead thanks to Craig Bellamy's eagerness to prove himself and a cruel deflection off Marc Tierney that gave Liverpool the lead in first-half stoppage time.
Norwich didn't buckle though and scored a deserved equalizer through substitute Grant Holt's header in the 60th minute.
Norwich played well at both Chelsea and Manchester United earlier in the season, but those two teams were able to force mistakes out of the new boys or at least score when they should have. Liverpool couldn't do the same and dropped to sixth in the table because of it.
Henry said before the season that if Liverpool did not qualify for the Champions League, it would be very disappointing, and though it's still early, the Reds certainly didn't look like top-four quality on Saturday.
